Roy Burger Films showed off their new offices to the press this (Thursday) morning. The new offices are located at 3140 South Blue Bell Road inside the MIC building. Roy Burger said that the offices will be their center of operations for the planned Burning of Brenham movie and other film making projects. Burger had previously planned on using the old Alton Elementary campus that he has leased from the school district, but the break-ins and vandalism at that location changed his mind. He said he may still utilize the gymnasium there for green screen shots.
The Burning of Brenham movie will be based on the book of the same title by Brenham’s Sharon Brass. Burger says that he plans on utilizing the new facility to produce numerous other movies and film projects. A movie set was planned to be built during the summer on property leased by Burger from the city Brenham, but that was put on hold after the May flooding. Burger said that the movie is moving forward now and that it will be a big economic asset to the area. He said that he has already received hundreds of applications for people hoping to be extras in the film and said that anyone interested could drop their information by the new office or through his website at RBFilmProductions.com.
